Still unable to post pictures. Well, actually, they post...you know that big empty box with the little red x ? That is what I'm getting now.
Comments from yesterday indicate that others are having or have had similar problems. Shelina, ACey, and Susan have all had difficulties. Evidently, some blogs have made the transfer, some are in the process, and some are waiting for notification. I'm waiting for notification, but worried.
I managed to get several chores and errands accomplished yesterday, then I finished most of the Christmas shopping. Not so much on the wrapping, though...
Today, some baking if I have time, but no pictures of the delightful and charming little kitchen adventures, and no, not because of Blogger. My messy efforts don't bear documentation. The product is generally pretty good, but the process is neither smooth nor efficient, and does not lend itself to photo shoots of the sort I adore on other blogs.
You know, those beautiful shots of food preparation (dough rolled out on a floury counter, chicken stock simmering on the stove, an egg delicately tapped on the side of a blue vintage bowl); the lovely aqua and red pattern of a kitchen mitt lifting the loaf of perfectly browned homemade bread from the oven - the image so successful that you can smell that homey, comforting smell of fresh-baked bread; and ending with an exquisite place setting and food artfully arranged on the plate? As a barely adequate and disinterested cook, my love of these photos seems a bit weird. But I DO love them and admire not just the ability to cook with such aplomb, but to stage these wonderful photographs as well.
Ya' won't get those here.
